Freezing Temperatures in March!

Wow! Yesterday here in N. Texas we had freezing temperatures and a sleeting thunderstorm! It was crazy.  Hard to believe the day before (Saturday) it was in the sunny 70's!!!! Gotta love Texas weather.  The sun is out today but dont let it fool you........it is still cold! I am still in my PJ's!!!

I had to get out and go to the store yesterday morning but after that I came home and put my PJ's back on and watched movies and cooked. I made Chicken and Dumplings and my husband made Beef Stew. So we are set on our lunch for today and perhaps Dinner!  It was my first time to make Chicken and Dumplings not totally from scratch but it was still alot of work. The dumplings were frozen. It turned out really good and my husband loved it.  But, then again he loves everything I cook or bake!  Seems like when it is cold all I want to do is stay in my PJ's (well, that is everyday for me-LOL) and eat all day long.  I ate so much yesterday I am sure I have gained a pound or two. I was sick all last week and did not make it to the gym.  I am feeling much better today but stayed home and will try to go work out tomorrow. 

It's been so busy here......February we celebrated both our Birthdays and Valentines. And our Benji had a birthday too!!! Same day as my husbands! LOL!  I have been doing a little decorating with my Spring Decorations. As soon as Valenetines was over all that decor came down and up went my Spring Tablescape.  I have a little of St. Patty's on my kitchen counter.  I have been slowly cleaning the upstairs.  Chores are never ending at our home not to mention the outside. All three of my patios need to be cleaned and decorated for Spring. The Grill needs cleaning, our Garden needs to be planted.  But, with this weather it is hard to do with it being cold one day and hot the other or rain, snow, ice or sleet!  That is our trend in Texas weather. I would not live anywhere else though!!!!

Well, I gotta go eat now. Here is one pic. I will share more later. Thanks for stoppping by! Even our dogs did not want to go out. LOL~ I love our CCTV system I can watch what's going on without getting out of my bed!!!!HA!

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Time is fast approaching for my Christmas Bunco Party this Sunday and I should be busy with doing things around the house. Instead, I am here on my computer and downloading so many pics I took this week.  It is not very often that our state is covered in ICE and that made for great photo backdrops. 

Sooooo.......without further ado I want you to meet Timmie our Elf! He came into our home like two years ago I think.  Anyway, we love having him around and he is so much fun!  I just had a mini photoshoot with him and wanted to share one photo today. (I have more and some cute video too).  And, I have to share a photo collage of my dogs photoshoot we had (we had two this week).

Have a great day!

I just wanna play!

Wow! December, what a busy month and we have been iced in since Friday! North Texas got blanketed with a sheet of ice. I have enjoyed being indoors but have not got alot accomplished.  I have been doing little chores here and there but, mostly cooking and cleaning kitchen and having fun with Photography.  I got really sick all of a sudden on Friday night it scared me. I was feeling faint and so dizzy and had ringing in my ear and it would not stop and felt like it was stopped up.  I finally went to bed and prayed that I would not get the Flu or anything.  I woke up Saturday feeling much better. 

I hate to admit it but, I am still putting away Fall and Halloween and have been decorating for Christmas in the midst of it all. I am hosting Bunco next Sunday and I must have this house completely decorated and cleaned. I still have shopping to do for the party and for Christmas. I proscratinate so much it's not funny anymore.  Just because I have too much time on my hands I put it off until the last minute then I am stressing and driving my husband crazy!  All he cares about is me getting all my "sh**" off of his pool table so that he can play pool.  I was doing real good putting it all away until my Christmas Bunco got cancelled and rescheduled due to the inclement weather.  Oh well, I did work on cleaning the game room yesterday and some today!  It's hard enough keeping the downstairs clean and besides no one goes upstairs and you can bet that on Thanksgiving I did not let anyone go up there! LOL!

Speaking of Thanksgiving we had a nice one spent with my Family and a couple of close friends. My husband deep fried two turkeys and I roasted one.  My family can eat alot and my husband can live on Turkey sandwiches!

He has been hunting quite a bit since opening day. He is determined to get a Buck!! I have not been to the gym in over two weeks and when I go back next week I know it will be tough!!!! I have slacked off on exercise and eating right!!! I keep tellling myself it's the Holidays!!! Bad excuse.

Here are a few pics.  Have a wonderful week. The news just reported all major ISD's are closed tomorrow and a few business closed or delayed openings.  All of the roads are iced over again and the Fog is heavy.  I thank God I do not have to get up to go anywhere in it. 

As you can see from the pics below my dogs were not in the mood for their Christmas Photo shoot! It is getting harder and harder to photograph them together bc they attack each other.

Notice the Cinnamon Rolls I made from Scratch! They were yummy and soooo sweet!
PS-I laid on solid ice to take that pic!!! Well, my husband was the photographer! I will post pics of our Tree later this week. It is Big and Beautiful! And, pictured below is Timmie, our Elf on the shelf!
